Today we’ve done something quite special: We’ve travelled to the Moon! Well, okay maybe not the actual Moon in outer space, but about as close as you can get. We went to see the Museum of the Moon, which is currently exhibiting at Rochester Cathedral, until Wednesday 4 March. The Museum of the Moon is … More Museum Of The Moon At Rochester Cathedral!
In December last year (2019), we visited Drusillas Park for the first time.

The abbey was founded there as part of a monastery, in the early 13th Century, and was built using local sandstone. Although … More Days Out In The South East: Bayham Old Abbey

Last week we visited Walmer castle and gardens, and it was a lovely afternoon out, made even better by the gloriously sunny weather. This was out first visit there, and I’m actually surprised I haven’t heard more about Walmer castle before, considering what an interesting as well as beautiful place this is to visit! A … More Days Out in the South East: Walmer Castle & Gardens
Just over a year ago, I wrote a post about Scotney Castle and how we’ve found it a lovely place to visit at all times of the year.
